Could it be?
I got a text from my mom’s friend/my occasional “boss” Vicki. (I technically work for her, but it doesn’t feel like it. I feel like I work WITH her.) THE LIBRARY IS CHECKING MY REFERENCES. I want to say they said they’d only do that with their first choice, but now I’m second-guessing myself and have decided they’re doing it with a handful of candidates. Yes, I’ve decided what they’re doing. It’s very godlike of me. Either way, I AM IN THE RUNNING FOR THIS POSITION.
Could I be happier? Um…I could win the lottery. But maybe getting a job? Solid second place.
I’m trying not to get too invested in wanting it. Maybe I shouldn’t have told Vicki to text me if they checked my references. Now I will be pretty darn disappointed if I don’t get it (whereas yesterday morning? had pretty much forgotten the whole thing, as you do when interviewing comes fairly routinely).
(But if I DO get the job, what should the Future Librarian tag be changed to? “Present Librarian” doesn’t have the same ring.)
